Example of DFD for Online Store (Data Flow Diagram)

Showing the connections between different components of same system you can make data flow diagram (DFD) to display the relationships and the interactions of different departments in the shop, for example. So making the DFD for the online store you have to mention all involved parties such as Administrator, Customer, Visitor, Manager, etc. To create this diagram can be much easier with help of the layouts from the libraries in the Solution Park. Using the existing examples from the libraries can simplify the work of drawing the needed flowcharts and diagrams for any kind of businesses.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM allows you to draw a simple and clear example of DFD for Online Store using special libraries, provided by Data Flow Diagrams Solution:

  • Data flow diagram (DFD) library contains 15 symbols for drawing both context-level data flow diagram and Level 1 DFD.
  • DFD, Gane-Sarson notation library contains 12 symbols of Gane-Sarson DFD notation.
  • DFD, Yourdon and Coad notation library contains 22 symbols of Yourdon/DeMarco DFD notation.

To produce professional and standardized data flow diagrams, most analysts will turn to a specialist drawing software, that can automate certain processes and cater for presentation and file sharing needs. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with the Data Flow Diagram solution, is ideal for this scenario. Within the solution is a comprehensive vector stencil library, offering the full range of icons from both notation sets mentioned above. Features inherent to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make the diagramming process simple and efficient — one click commands allow users to select and place icons, intuitively place connector arrows, and share their document in a range of presentation modes or file types.

An added bonus is the wealth of learning material available, particularly in relation to data flow and process diagrams, and a number of other solutions that support similar topics.

Adding the Data Flow Diagram solution to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM gives you a powerful tool to help analyze and devise data flows for any business process or system.

DFD Library — Design elements →

Data Flow Diagram is used to depict the flow of data through the system, where it enters and exits the system, as well as where it is stored. To simplify the process of drawing a data flow diagram (DFD), ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides a DFD Library - design elements that will help you make your diagram as informative, streamlined and understandable as possible. Data flow diagrams are useful to create a general overview of the system or to document major data flows. Here are the library of symbols used in data flow diagrams (DFD). Data Flow diagrams are graphic means of business process visualization. Any business process may involve the data transfer. It can be easily shown using data flow diagrams. DFDs are used to represent the processing and transformation of data within a business process. One can find out the Vector library of DFD symbols, that is a component of ConceptDraw solution for Data Flow Diagramming and is welcome to use in as addition to the common Conceptdraw DIAGRAM diagramming facilities.DFD Library — Design elements *

Types of Flowcharts →

A flowchart is a simple but very functional tool when it comes to understanding a workflow or to removing unnecessary stages from a process. When drawing flowcharts, keep in mind that there are four common types of flowcharts, like document flowcharts and data flowcharts that show control over a data or document flow over a system. To show controls on a physical level, use system flowcharts. In addition, to show controls in a program, you can draw a program flowchart. This flowchart diagram represents the piece of an article editing process, that involves the author and editor. It was created using the Basic Flowchart notation that consists from the basic flowchart symbols. The start and the end of the process are indicated with "Terminator" symbols. The "Process" symbols show the action steps consisting from making edits and searching for a compromise, when the author does not agree with the suggestions of the editor. The "Process" symbol is the general symbol in process flowcharts. The "Decision" symbol indicates a branching in the process flow. There are two branches indicated by a Decision shape in the current flowchart (Yes/No, Disagree/Agree). This basic flowchart can be used as a repeating unit in the workflow diagram describing the working process of some editorial office.Types of Flowcharts *
